Try: A Victorian Séance Experience

When: October 27th-29th, 6:30pm-10:30pm 

Where: Mabry Hazen House / 1711 Dandridge Ave. Knoxville 

Become an investigator into demonstrations of Spiritualism at
A Victorian Seance Experience!

From 6:30pm-10:30pm on October 27-29, Mabry Hazen House will host a Victorian Séance Experience inside the front parlors of the 1858 Historic House. 

The House of Tarot will offer Tarot Readings and Halloween Vendors from 6:00pm-11:30pm on the same nights. 

As the evenings grow darker and the first hint of winter hangs in the air, the western world enters the season of the dead. It is a time when ghost stories, dark tales, and mysterious happenings rise up to help us understand death and the unexplained. Along with the historic house museum and family history, Mabry-Hazen House also preserves this darker history of Americans' experiences with death, burial, and Spiritualism. For the fifth year, Mabry-Hazen House will exhibit those macabre, yet fascinating cultural moments during their immersive A Victorian Séance Experience.

Under the guidance of a Victorian medium, the séances will reenact a nineteenth century Spiritualist séance filled with “mysterious and startling wonders.” Joining their Victorian host, sitters will judge historic “demonstrations” of mediumship. Relying on primary sources from the nineteenth century, these sessions recreate a Victorian séance and give you an immersive experience to investigate them. Whether true manifestations of spirits or clever parlor tricks, sitters at the séances will experience this eerie, yet ubiquitous aspect of 19th century American life.

Séances occur every 20 minutes starting at 6:30 pm and ending at 10:30pm. Guests select a specific date and time to reserve a seat at the table. Each session is limited to 7 guests, and it is strongly recommended tickets be purchased in advance. All sitters must be age 10 or older. Sitters should arrive at least 15 minutes before their reservation.
Adult Sitting Admission (18+): $20
Youth Sitting Admission (10-17): $15

In addition to the séances, Mabry-Hazen House also hosts the House of Tarot, which offers tarot readings and Halloween vendors! No reservation needed to come browse the wares and get your cards read. House of Tarot will be open nightly October 27-29, 2022 from 6:00pm to 11:30pm.
